Victor Mu

satov was born in Saratov, Russia (he added the last name Borisov later). His
father was a minor railway official who had been born as a serf. In his childhood he
suffered a spinal injury, which made him humpbacked for the rest of his life. In 1884 he
entered Saratov real school, where his talents as an artist were discovered by his teachers
Fedor Vasiliev and Konovalov.

He was enrolled in the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in 1890,
transferring the next year to the Imperial Academy of Arts in Saint-Petersburg, where he was
a pupil of Pavel Chistyakov. The damp climate of Saint-Petersburg was not good for Victor's
health and in 1893 he was forced to return to Moscow and re-enroll to the Moscow School of
painting, sculpturing and architecture. His earlier works like May flowers, 1894 were
labelled decadent by the school administration, who sharply criticised him for making no
distinction between the girls and the apple trees in his quest for a decorative effect. The
same works however were praised by his peers, who considered him to be the leader of the new
art movement.

The Pool. 1902In 1895 Victor once again left Moscow School of painting, sculpturing and
architecture and enrolled in Fernand Cormon's school in Paris. He studied there for three
years, returning in summer months to Saratov. He was fascinated by the art of his French
contemporaries, and especially by the paintings of "the father of French Symbolism" Pierre
Puvis de Chavannes and by the work of Berthe Morisot.

In 1898 Borisov-Musatov returned to Russia and almost immediately fell into what it is
called "fin de siècle nostalgia". He complained about "the cruel, the truly iron age", "dirt
and boredom", "devil's bog", and he had acute money problems that were somewhat alleviated
only in the last years of his life when collectors started to buy his paintings. Musatov's
response was creating a half-illusory world of the 19th century nobility, their parks and
country-seats. This world was partially based on the estate of princes Prozorvky-Galitzines
Zubrilovka and partially just on Musatov's imagination. Borisov-Musatov also abandoned
oil-paintings for the mixed tempera and watercolor and pastel techniques that he found more
suitable for the subtle visual effects he was trying to create.

Borisov-Musatov was a member of the Union of Russian Artists and one of the founders and the
leader of the Moscow Association of Artists, a progressive artistic organization that
brought together Pavel Kuznetsov, Peter Utkin, Alexander Matveyev, Martiros Saryan, Nikolai
Sapunov, and Sergei Sudeikin.

The most famous painting of that time is The Pool, 1902. The painting depicts two most
important women in his life: his sister, Yelena Musatova and his bride (later wife), artist
Yelena Alexandrova. The people are woven into the landscape of an old park with a pond.
Another famous painting is The Phantoms. 1903 depicting ghosts on the steps of an old
country manor. The painting was praised by the contemporary Symbolist poets Valery Bryusov
and Andrey Bely.

In 1904 Borisov-Musatov had a very successful solo exhibition in a number of cities in
Germany, and in the spring of 1905 he exhibited with Salon de la Société des Artistes
Française and became a member of this society.

The last finished painting of Borisov-Musatov was Requiem. Devoted to the memory of Nadezhda
Staniukovich, a close friend of the artist, the painting may indicate Borisov-Musatov's
evolution towards the Neo-classical style.

Borisov-Musatov died on October 26, O.S. 1905 of a heart attack and is buried on a bank of
Oka River near Tarusa. On his tomb there is a sculpture of a sleeping boy by Musatov's
follower Alexander Matveyev.
